The crucible Anticipation/reaction guide Part II. Edwardsburg Highschool

Megan Belcher
Confessing to a crime you did not commit is not wise. In life we must find things that we truly feel strongly enough to die for. A crime in the case of The Crucible such as witchcraft is dealing with the devil and one should never let their name be associated with such dark matter unless the accusation is true.
In The Crucible Tituba and Sarah good confessed to witchcraft to avoid being hung. This taints their name and their family's name. If they had not confessed to such crime, they would have been thought of as brave. The fact that witchcraft was viewed as such a sinister act during this time, makes all the more sense not to confess. Confess and spend your life in prison, hated by the townspeople; or refuse to confess to an ungodly crime and preserve your soul and dignity.
Although confessing allowed Tituba and Sarah Good to live and not be hung, what kind of life is a life spent entirely in prison? Prison cells in most cases were 2x2ft and people put in them were treated like garbage. Living as filth is not really living at all. Those who confessed were thought of as the devil so no one respects or cares about you; your life has prematurely ended the moment you confess.
Confessing to a crime you did not commit is not wise. God understands why someone would not want to be associated with witchcraft. What a horrible thing, to be accused. What an even more horrible way to spend the rest of your life if you confess to save it. John proctor changed his mind about confessing when he became fed up with the court wanting to nail his confession upon the church. “God does not need my name nailed upon a church! God sees my name; God knows how black my sins are! It is enough!”. John Proctor states this after being asked for the confession; which would be put on the church. This shows his true feelings about the confession.
